In case you didn’t read my last post “Converting…how to tell parents?” I was planning on attending college in Chicago and converting through their RCIA program. However…it turns out my dream college is just too expencive at least for the first year or so. I’m VERY grateful to my parents for helping me pay for college so I didn’t want to be to hard on their wallet. So now I’m going to a college close to home…so close, in fact, that my mother told me “well, there’s no point in wasting your money on campus housing when you can live with us!” Yay. Every college kids dream right?
Well anyway, that’s not so bad. But here’s my problem. I still really want to convert to Catholicism and feel it’s the right thing. This morning I talked to my dad about Catholics (didn’t tell him I wanted to BE one…) and he doesn’t seem as opposed to them as I thought (he, like my mother, is a Baptist). Like I said in my last post, I’m really worried about how my mom will react…and NOW things are going to be more difficult…more awkward…since I’m still living at home and attending church with my friend.
Any advice on how to make this easier? (sorry if this post is redundant of my last one…I’m not trying to flood the board!)
